Sponsored Students Achieve Lofty Goals and Make Us Super Proud – Newsletter November 2023

Shares

Dear well-wisher,
Thank you for your continued support. In this newsletter we bring you an update on our activities during the past year.

Our primary mission is to provide scholarships to needy students at our beloved school, OKSSS. In some cases, where the student lives very far from the school, we also provide nominal transport costs. 

We are pleased to report that, due to your generosity, we were able to provide 45 scholarships to needy students during the past year. This matched the previous year’s number, and was a huge increase from previous years, mainly because, during the COVID years 2020 and 2021, the school was completely shut down, and therefore we had zero scholarship-related expenses.
